Heritage sites, extensive lakelands, bogs mountains and canals - the diversity of the Midlands-East region of Ireland may come as a surprise if you have not visited before.

The area consists of 8 counties: Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Offaly, Meath, Westmeath and Wicklow - each with its own local attractions and differences, hence the diversity!

This region boasts the Wicklow Mountains National Park the ancient chamber tombs of Newgrange, the famous horse-country of Kildare and tranquil walks along banks of the Grand Canal. Here you can visit gardens and stately homes, play golf or enjoy a day out at the races.
